I never fed Iams or Eukanuba before. our cats growing up always ate Purina or whatever was on sale. Now Oliver gets Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul. I hate the name of the food lol No short way of saying it.

I love sinking money into my pets, it's a real hobby of mine, these pets. Especially my dog, every penny I earned went into him (now with the tattoo, he's still costing me money lol). All the games I play are online or I already have them, I don't drink or smoke, I have all the clothes I need... The only thing left is pets and food :)

Fishy no not that I know of, plus I've seen him try to bite my niece and my dad.

Sakura I hope so too because this is getting discouraging. The worst part is his cage cleaning day is coming up and I have no idea how to get him out of there to clean it. O_O

Now try feeding 7 cats a decent quality food. We buy at least two 16 lb bags of food a month. The Purina food they were on cost $35 but I switched them recently back to Iams, whcih is oh so slightly cheaper at maybe $30.
Really?! Iams is cheaper than Purina?! Wow Iams must of slipped on their food quality.

Hm....he's getting to be a feisty one isn't he.
Where'd you get him? I know the pet stores tend to handle them with rough hands. He may take some time to realize you won't be man handling him.

Another reason I like snakes/fish.. Cheap to feed. Snake is now at $1 a week for food. xD Fish, okay actually I spent about $30 on the goldfish food so far, including the batch I messed up and all the vitamins I had to get. Still not that bad. xD

Petsmart, they are the closest and only store here that had winter whites in stock. I think I know where the problem might be though, after reading few articles it seems because of the cage the way I have to put my hand in is usually over his head due to a deep base. It may just take some time before I can handle him as winter whites can sometimes be feisty.

It may also be he's being territorial so mabey once he's out and on my hand he may be different which is why I'm cleaning the base of another cage in case I need to put him down into something while I clean his cage.

My dad, the brute ain't helping either, his solution is "oh just pick him up and if he bites you he bites you". >.<*

That sounds like something my FIL would say. Sounds like you've got a plan for your bugger. I hope he soon chills out for you.

Fishy, this is what I was feeding:

Pro Plan Indoor Cat Turkey & Rice Formula Cat Food at PETCO

Here's what I feed now:
Iams ProActive Health Multi-Cat with Chicken Cat Food at PETCO

The nice $31 price tag is only online. It was usually at least $32 in store. Hmm. Looks like they are actually equal in price.

If I had just one or two cats, I'd feed Halo, Ellen DeGenere's brand. But it only comes in small bags.
